The Australian downtempo project Folcene revealed the latest tune, In The Summer, on the 23rd.
There are four songs around, each of different story-line three are dappled in warm sunlight the most recent however lays in a shadow, which, for me, affords the track a more generous texturing that enables the richness of the composition a more expressive space in which to expand and develop its theme as electronica, instrumentation and vocal to fill the room with an immersive flow of melting wax in which to lay the head and allow the music to flow in to the veins filling the body with a relaxing injection, akin to a glass of alcohol raking off the sharp edges of the day.
The Australian folk creator Hannah Cameron releases the LP I Lay Where You Lie on the 8th of June.
An eight track album (available on bandcamp) of mesmeric music and vocal which transports the listener, as though observing the world from an outerbody experience, in to a restful calmness from which the only sadness is to return to the reality of life.
The Australian jangle-wave project of Daniel Moss – Field Maps – released the single Cassavetes yesterday.

Slightly over four and a third minutes Cassavetes (available on bandcamp) continues the theme of the only other track around Action At A Distance with its ever more pressing repetition of phrase, giving the guitar, electronics and percussion the sense of a stuttering loop, a technique which, akin to those who find the sound of screeching chalk either excruciating or a delight, will divide listeners in to those, such as myself, who are keen to hear more and those who will never be able to contemplate cartography with ease again.
The Australian deep-house project Kuroshi released the single Lock N Load yesterday.
It is rare that EDM producers create music which is as redolent with vitriol towards a system that oppresses the masses for the enjoyment of the few or as socially aware, therefore of course I am going to suggest spending time in company.
Following on from last years EP Dark Drive, Lock N Load further develops the theme of the five songs of angry protestation with a song that has an even darker and more overbearing presence, while once again creating music which sits well under flashing neon strobes.
The Brazil based trippy-rock quartet King In The Belly released the single Intimate Strangers on the 4th.

The combination of three Brazilians and one Australian enable the quartet to deliver music which has a difference of sound and wide ranging ideas, with Intimate Strangers drawing deeply from the well of ’70s psychedelia.
Though only getting in to gear last year four previous singles and plans for an LP this – evidence of a group of musicians keep to get fully up to speed and a quartet I look forward to hearing more fromm in short order.
Whilst developing their own opportunities around Santa Rita do Sapucaí, where they are based, they are also working with other regional and national bands to bring live music to the area through ‘back yard sessions’ which are in essence mini DIY festivals.
